wooo hoooo!!!!! this is my topic! Im 20 as of this january, and have been skiing since I was 5 years old...my father was an instructer and used to yank me out of kindergarten to ski...ha ha...the good ole days. Anyway, Ive been to a lot of East Coast places, and like them, but nothing touches out west. Ive been to Aspen, Snowmass (CO), and Park City, and the Canyons in Utah. I used to be into the freestyle/park stuff, but kinda got out of it. Im totally in love with the HUGE double blacks outwest, so backcountry tough techinical skiing is where its at for me. I love to ski, and will do it till the day I die. My equip is Volkl 169cm twin tips, Look Pivot bindings, Nordica freestyle boots, and some cheapy Axis poles that I beat the heck out of. Good topic! Keep up the posts.
